ikki5 commented on Nintendo Download: 26th February (North America):


Golden Sun 2, DK Country Returns and Kirby's Return to Dreamland for Wii... that's basically all that I care about now.... then maybe all the normal New 3DS stuff that We don't get because Nintendo thinks North Americans are stupid and retarded.



ikki5 commented on Club Nintendo in Japan is Full of Delightful T...:


The fact that 4 years ago is when they start reducing heavily restocking anything and then about 2 and a half years ago, when something was gone, it was gone. Yeah, we got games, but it was the same 15-20 games over and over again with nothing else being added except for once or twice a year, we'd get a limited edition item that would be gone in less than 10 minutes of it being added. Also the fact that the Europeans complained constantly about how we were so much better because we had reused and recycled game rewards every month and never had anything ever restocked or added out our Club Nintendo unlike what was offered in Europe. Also, the games were technically still available in Europe only they had the entire Wii e-shop library to choose from. Though it cost about 50% more, it at least gave them something to use their points on instead of them being expired. Last year I had 1300 coins expire, the year before, 900. The year before that was 300.


We didn't have physical rewards except for limited stuff for almost 2 years until February

@Mus1cLov3r why? my normal 3DS can play all the games now... and the only one it won't be able to is this and then i can just play it on my Wii/Wii U. until there are more games out there that are exclusive to the New 3DS, there really isn't any incentive to buy it.



ikki5 commented on You'd Better Get a Bigger Micro-SDHC Card for ...:

this is why I just buy the game cards, can play on any 3DS (in this case it'll be any New 3DS) and it leaves more than enough rune for the other shovelware you buy... though it does kind of baffle me that the only true incentive to buy the New 3DS involves you spending even more money (after buying the charger) to buy the bigger SD card for those who only buy digital.



ikki5 commented on Gold Mario amiibo Set to Shine as Walmart Excl...:

Doesn't matter to me anyway. i don't care for any Mario Amiibos except for the toads nor do I care for this game. Due to the fact that the car is still here, I'll even even begin considering this game.



ikki5 commented on New Nintendo 3DS Launch Sales in the West Surp...:


yes, i guess that is true but the thing is, by the time those new games come... the magic of the system is gone. It's doesn't rely surprise me on why Nintendo is kind of failing with their hardware. Really, they should have waited a year, and pushed out the successor to the 3DS instead of try to stretch out the legs of the system. Next year the system would be 5 years old, it would not have been too early to early to announce the successor.



ikki5 commented on New Nintendo 3DS Launch Sales in the West Surp...:

sorry to say but those... are kind of crappy sales figures... The 3DS in general had 7 times that figure when it was first launched and that was when the 3DS was considered too expensive and was on the road to bad sales.



ikki5 commented on RCMADIAX Scales Back Wii U Plans for 2015:


Or they post it because it is news and this is a news site.

Oh, btw, the sales are going to be just as bad. The only difference is you'll have more people ridiculing your games. You thought the Nintendo fans was bad? Just wait until you see the Xbox elitists.... PS community isn't as bad but they are about on Par with Nintendo.... so have fun with them. You're better off going exclusively mobile with your...."games"


nice... delete the post. lol

@Yorumi Cod is bashed because it is the same especially in the later games. Everything looks the game, everything plays the game, the HUD, the guns, the mechanics, everything is the same except with a new skin. There is nothing new. Mario, yeah it is basically the same story but it is not played for the story, it is based on the levels, the creativity in the levels over all. That's a plat former for you.Going by your logic, we can no longer call any plat-former magical because they are all basically the game and mostly follow the same formula as they always have. That goes with any other genre. It all depends on how you use that formula and what you do with it. It is not the same as taking the story of Cinderella, changing the names and calling it new.

So.. I guess anything that comes after the first is not magical.... with the exception of the Mario series with 64 and Galaxy. And it is not really worship status. I am more excited to see what these guys are going to bring to the table because what they created was amazing. It was heart breaking when they had left because it was like the magic they created was never to be revived but now with this, there is a chance. So I am excited to see what they have to offer instead of this morbid attitude you bring here which is probably just a reply bait that I stupidly took.

Also, Splatoon is being developed by Nintendo EAD Group No. 2 which those people I named... all play a major role in that group... meaning that the game development is still over seen and probably heavily influenced by them.

On last thing, why does a game have to be different for it to have "magic"? Seriously, I am curious to see the answer because there is nothing wrong with using the same or similar formula when creating a game or a game series. That is generally how a series is created. What makes them great is the formula that is used and then how you use it in the creation of new games. Just because one game doesn't get as high as a score as another doesn't mean that it is a nothing game. We also cannot compare giant robot or project guard because they are very early (or were when they were shown) development and we really don't have much to base them on. They could move to something even more that can really wow us when they next show it. Same goes with Star Fox. We literally have nothing on that game so comparing these and deciding their outcomes in their alpha stages is really unfair.

Whats the difference? It is still their creativity, their direction, they say what happens and what goes on in the development of their games. Why is that any difference. Also, 20s and 30s? What a bunch of Hog Wash. Creativity is any time of your life, Some of the worlds most famous paintings are from people when they were in their 40s and 50s... but also from people in their 20s and even 60s-80s. Putting an age for when people are most creative is a bunch of BS. The same applies for Poetry, Writing, and so forth so that age bull crap is a bunch of bull crap. Do us a favour, do some research before you start spewing out bogus statistics.

Also, for plenty of time? like I said, they were under the hand of Microsoft, they didn't give nearly as much freedom as Nintendo did, then again, Nintendo didn't fully own them. We also do not know what kind of creativity they were going to give for the games they had in development that got cancelled. That's what ends up happening. You get these gaps because of a company being bought, so games are cancelled and you end up waiting to see the next one.

Also, Nuts and Bolts... it wasn't a bad game, it was just bad for the name they put on it. If they left it as something else, it would have been a fine game and probably well received. As for Bungie with Halo.... hate to say it but shooters require a lot less creativity than a 3D platformer/ adventure game.

As for Nintendo not buying them, A lot of the people that made those games had already left, some of those people that would be included in the group that this article is about. Then when MS bought them, the rest left.

"In the subsequent years after their N64 success did they produce any games that came close to the same levels of creative success as then?"

Banjo Tooie came out two years before MS bought them and starting around 2000, when the game was launched, Both Microsoft and Activision were showing interest and visiting them. They did have a game already in development for the gamecube at the time but they never got to finish it because they went first party by 2002. This is why you don't see anything great from them after the N64 Era because Microsoft owned Rare then and controlled them.

Also, what does being old have to do with anything? Look at Miyamoto, Aonuma, Koizumi, They are all old they they still create the magic that they once did 20 years ago plus many more. Being old means nothing.



ikki5 commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

removing scores will probably deter 85%-90% of people because... to be honest, more people just scroll to see the score than actually read the entire review. I've seen so many people just complain about how someone got X score instead of X or about how it got X score which means X.
